'Female Parts':

A

well done trilogy

By Philip Ross
In the last, best play of the
trilogy Female Parts, the lights
come on to show. a woman lying
supine on a black platform, her
head toward the audience and her
legs splayed wide. She groans under
the weight of an invisible lover,
screams she cannot breathe,
complains of her fear of pregnancy
and of his indifference to -the

problem, and tells him to stop in
time. Evidently he does not.
She spins around and, in a
different tone, addresses an invisible
abortionist. She lies down with her
legs toward the audience, her legs in
imaginary stirrups. "A million lire"
she exclaims, and decides to have
the baby after all. Fast-forward, and
she gives birth; forward once more,
and she is telling her daughter a
fabulous fairy tale.
Called "The Same Old Story,"

alluding, perhaps, to the song, "As
Time Goes By," this play
hammered away at the trilogy's
theme: Men are brutes and women
are their victims.
This is hardly new or profound,
but so what? In principle, one could
make a good play out of even
thinner intellectual material; the
important thing is that it be
engaging. "The Same Old Story"
was. It kept the audience off
balance, its minimalist set worked,

and its variety of characters gave
plenty of room to the considerable
talents of the solo actress, Patricia
Boyette, a member of the theatre
department. Particularly effective
was her rendition of a foul-mouthed
talking doll, whose curses were
uttered in a hick Southern accent -
an inspired choice.
The play also managed to shock,
no mean feat today. But simulated
copuation is something one still
does not expect to see in Ann

Unfortunately, it came at the
end, after the first two plays had
vitiated the shock-value of their
only strong suit: black humor. The
first play, "Waking Up," is really
no more than a mediocre Lucille
Ball skit, recast in with-it feminist
form. A mother scrambles to get to
work on time, forgetting first one
thing and then the other, quickly

her bumbling and sympathize with
her indictment of her husband, and
others of his sex. At the end, she
realizes that it's Sunday, and goes
back to bed.
The second play, "A Woman
Alone," shows us a housewife
locked in her home by her
domineering husband, and talking
